Don't be a victim
From DNA Info:
Thieves are targeting mothers shopping at the Rego Center Mall and stealing things they leave on top of their strollers as they walk around stores, police said.
At least two such cases have been recently reported, including one at Marshalls, according to Judith Harrison, the commanding officer of the 112th Precinct, which covers Forest Hills and Rego Park.
“This is particularly important because the holiday season is coming,” Harrison said at a community council meeting earlier this week.
Harrison said the suspects wait for the victims to leave strollers.
“They are walking away from their purses and they are walking away from the child that is sitting in that stroller,” she said.
